Join the Maviance Team

We are currently hiring extraordinary engineers and designers (students as well for intern positions) who want to build challenging mobile solutions for the next 3 billion internet users. We're in the business of using smartphone and mobile technology to add value to enterprises with mobile field workers. We're looking to bring together the brightest minds to focus very interesting technical challenges.

At Maviance, you have the unique opportunity to face many different kinds of challenges and touch many different kinds of technologies that allow our platform to address our customer’s diverse needs.

The maviance vision is also a very important part of everyone's life that works here. We work hard and go the extra mile because we love to see the vision manifest into reality and we love to hear our customers tell us thank you!
The team is (still) a small one and we are looking for people excited to make an impact. You would take responsibility for many challenges (we call them growing opportunities), manage them independently and define creative solutions while taking into considerations the constraints.

Mobile Development Candidates

We're looking for people who want to face interesting technical challenges in constrained infrastructure environments: How do you develop compelling products with full service features in environment were bandwidth is low and connectivity is unstable? How should OCAs (occasionally connected applications) be designed to synchronize on the Android platform?

Our products interact seamlessly with mobile and web. We are therefore challenged to prioritize, design, and build a compelling product while maintaining simplicity and usability. We do not stick to a particular paradigm and therefore would expect you to readily learn Android, C# for Windows phone or objective-c for iPhone clients should the need be.

 

Your Profile

  • A demonstrated history of intellectual and entrepreneurial exploration
  • Excitement for IT and emerging markets and products
  • Enjoy driving new ideas especially in the mobile/Smartphone space
  • Self-Motivation and ability to work autonomously as well as in a team
  • Good English skills are a must; German is not required but also nice to have.
  • Be able to write elegant, readable, and well-documented code.
  • A demonstrated history of intellectual and entrepreneurial exploration.

Plus

Ability to make an impact on different aspects of our platform. For example: Debugging our synchronization algorithms to speed them up and make them more robust, simplifying the setup process, customizing queries to reduce bandwidth, optimized our architecture to speed up time to market. Do you get the message? You must be able to learn new technologies very fast.

Submit your resume and let us know why you think you're the one to make the impact on our team. We're looking forward to hearing from you!

Web Design and Development Candidates

We're looking for people who believe that design is an understanding of how the products we build interact with the people that use them. People who are interested in designing continuously extensible systems to meet needs our customers may not even think of today.

Ideal candidates should always consider how best a web application would interact with a mobile device in environments that have constrained infrastructures.

Your Profile

  • A demonstrated history of intellectual and entrepreneurial exploration
  • Excitement for IT and emerging markets and products
  • Enjoy driving new ideas especially in the web /Smartphone space
  • Self-Motivation and ability to work autonomously as well as in a team
  • Good English skills are a must; German is not required but also nice to have.
  • Be able to write elegant, readable, and well-documented code.
  • A demonstrated history of intellectual and entrepreneurial exploration.
  • You have previous experience creating web applications in PHP / OOP
  • Ideally you have already some experience with the Symfony 1.x framework
  • MySQL, ORM, Doctrine etc are familiar terms for you.

Plus

Product design is an iterative process and we want those who share this belief. Your ability to create rapid prototypes to communicate design ideas is crucial.

Submit your resume and let us know why you think you're the one to make the impact on our team. We're looking forward to hearing from you!

Students (Internships, Bachelor and Master Thesis)

Maviance believes in empowering motivated dynamic students by giving them the opportunity to grow in real life projects. Theory is much easier to understand when combined directly with on the job training.

Our market focus being emerging markets (“the next three billion IT consumers”), are faced with very interesting growing opportunities (challenges) from an engineering/technical point of view as well as from a business development point of view.

If any of the sample challenges below excite you, feel free to write to us. Let us know why you can make an impact, what your favourite movie in the year 2006 was and why
